It seems we’re going to have to wait a little longer for Denis Villeneuve’s Frank Herbert adaptation Dune, with Warner Bros. announced that it has pushed back the release of the sci-fi epic a month from November 20th 2020 to December 18th 2020.
The film will now open alongside Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story, Paramount’s comedy sequel Coming 2 America, and Sony’s Uncharted movie (assuming of course it isn’t still in development hell by that point).
Villeneuve wrapped filming on Dune last week, and is now entering post-production on the first of what is planned as a two-part adaptation of the seminal sci-fi novel. The filmmaker is also developing the live-action TV series Dune: The Sisterhood for WarnerMedia’s HBO Max streaming service.
Dune sees Timothee Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name) leading the cast as Paul Atreides alongside Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Fallout), Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Dave Bautista (Avengers: Infinity War), Stellan Skarsgard (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again), Charlotte Rampling (Red Sparrow), Zendaya (Spider-Man: Far From Home), Javier Bardem (Loving Pablo), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Josh Brolin (Avengers: Endgame), Stephen Henderson (Fences), and Chang Chen (The Assassin).
